WIRECUT REDS

The term "wirecut brick" is generally applied to bricks made using early brick extrusion techniques during the first part of the 20th century. These bricks record the first  attempts at mechanised brick production, but unlike modern machine made bricks, these wirecuts were still a bit rough around the edges. Our wirecut bricks pay homage to these early bricks by resurrecting their unique charm and character. While all of our red wirecut bricks are made from the same base clay and using the same process, their location and stacking within the kiln produces an array of styles and colours.
